This July, three of New Zealand’s finest folk acts will join forces for a hearty live experience you won’t want to miss. Their energy combined is enough to power a small village!
Exemplary New Zealand artists Nadia Reid, Marlon Williams, Aldous Harding and Delaney Davidson are now taking the world by storm with their variations of folk music, and there is more from where that came from on this fertile land. Folk is back, and it is not going away anytime soon.
Albi & The Wolves are the most recent recipients of the 2018 Tui for Best Folk Artist for their stunning debut album One Eye Open, which captures the Auckland trio’s captivating blend of folk with modern sensibilities of neighbouring genres and styles. From Wellington via Scotland, The Frank Burkitt Band are no strangers to tour van life, having recently played Port Fairy Folk Festival in Australia off the back of their new album Raconteur. Taranaki’s own theSlacks will be joined by fellow Taranaki musician Ben Dixon, spreading their hearty, good vibes and highly singable tunes to audiences both young and young at heart – with a bit of Kiwiana for good measure.
The collective character of these three groups has helped shape a community and a hearty camaraderie around the music. They love playing music, but most importantly they love playing it together.
Catch this big, fun-loving musical family when they hit a town near you!
